Found: For project names in families like "Test.iOS" and "Test.Android"
and "Test.OSX", Xamarin.Mac is now mangling artifact locations/names.
E.g., you now end up with a TestOSX.app instead of Test.OSX.app.
Xamarin.Mac 188.8.131.52, also Xamarin.iOS current and for at least some time now.
Xamarin.iOS has also been doing this, but it even aliases the assembly bits as well.
Xamarin.Android does not mangle these names---you end up with a clean, precise honoring
of compound names all the way to the .apk and within.
The main issue here is inconsistency --- I've had to author one-off add-in and scripting
bits to essentially chase naming convention changes in the Xamarin toolchain.
It'd be helpful if a project of a given name has that name honored precisely
and consistently (as reported by the add-in project name property) no matter
the context, wherever possible.
Sorry, I filed a better one under https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=22116, which indicates the more severe consequence of failed builds.
I'll mark this as a duplicate.
